i have a friend who decided he liked men...
Opinion. He decided to come out. He likely "liked" men for some time before that.
(after being married to a wonderful woman for a long time and had 3 kids..etc etc) ... he was diagnosed with HIV which then turned into full-blown (pardon the pun) aids ...
Likely from creeping around washrooms, like most closet cases tend to do to alleviate their "urges."
he then decided that being gay wasnt all its cracked up to be (pun not intended again) and he CHOSE to be straight.
After a bunch of God-botherers decided to harp on him about how sinful his lifestyle was, and he decided to go back into the closet.
his aids is completely gone, as well as HIV...
he and his wife are fine together.
so umm... it is a choice.
Insofar as you can choose to accept who you are...yes.
and he will tell that to anyone who asks...
Because he'll be more than happy to tell anyone who asks that he has a communicable STI and is in a sham marriage. people are so open about such things.
You're either horribly ignorant or a flat out liar. Take your pick.
